"Synthetic Blend" "Y" (Yellow) series DRUM Type polishing pads,and Wash / Applicator
The latest, most advanced development
in DRUM type polishing Pad technology.
In addition to our high quality "HD"
(High Density) Cotton Industrial DRUM TYPE polishing pads, we
are excited to release a new kind of polishing pad. A revoloutionary
breakthrough in polishing pad design & construction. After
several years of intensive research and many trials using dozens
of combinations of materials, we have finally developed what is
the most advanced & versatile pad for use with the DRUM type
industrial polishing machines. The new "Y" series pads
benefit from a propriatary blend of synthetic and natural fibers.
This "Blend" allows large surface polishing with consistant
surface temperatures. "Warmer" than wool or cotton but
"cool" enough to completely prohibit surface overheating.
The "Y" series pads give an unparalled & consistant
finish, on a wide variety of surface types, using a wide variety
of polishing compounds, and at the same time, providing unparalled
pad longevity and durability.
This is the DRUM TYPE polishing pad
to use, for the best all round performance. Versatile: for use
in "Cutting" operations (using appropriate "cutting"
compounds) & excellent in "Finishing" operations,
(using appropriate "finishing" compounds), on all surfaces,
painted, composite, acrylics, and bare metals.
